In this series, the children watch the Bible Lesson towards the beginning of the lesson, before they see the Skit. The Skit in Ten Hut follows a similar structure to the other 'standard' Elevate series, with three main characters throughout the whole Skit. The difference is that the Skit is in two parts, with the Teacher and Co-Teacher interrupting the skit in the middle to help the kids decide what they think the main characters, Boston and Beans, should do based on the Bible Lesson they've already seen. The lessons are stand alone so you can adapt them to your timeline. However, Lesson 1 begins the story and Lesson 8 ties the story together at the end. For this series, the Perform It Live Teaching Format includes performing the Bible Lesson and Skit live.

- Buy or make camouflage nets to drape over sets or even the doorway to your room.
- Use a canvas tent, oil drums, old tires, etc. as props on your stage.
